Spring Clean-Up 2019

Spring Clean-Up is scheduled for Friday, May 17th. This is your normal trash collection day; however, Waste Management will be sending extra trucks to pick up additional household waste.

The Tire Collection will take place on May 17th and 18th. To take advantage of the program, all you need to do is bring your old, used tires to the Street Department located at 4100 Orchard Lane and throw them in the dumpster.  The dumpster will be available Friday, May 17th from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM as well as Saturday, May 18th from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM.

There is no cost for the service; however, to ensure everyone gets to participate, there is a limit of 10 tires per household.  You will need to show the program monitor proof that you are an Obetz resident.  You may show your driver’s license or your latest water bill.
